This cartoon series

http://borgman.enquirer.com/gallery2/borgmaneastwest1.html (broken link)

will explain it all.

Basically, the West Siders are characterized as a bunch of beer-swilling, backyard barbecuing, rabid sports fans, and the East Siders portrayed as discerning, fine-living sophisticates.

West Siders shout "The West Side is the Best Side!" East Siders just roll their eyes and check the stock listings. That sort of thing.

None of it is wholly true, and it's basically nothing more than a long-running joke.
